Elijah Wood is teaming with Anthony Moody and Rob Malkani's Indalo Productions to produce the Elliott Chaze legendary noir novel, Black Wings Has My Angel for the big screen.

The script is being written by Barry Gifford and Christopher Peditto; it centers on an antihero, an ex-convict, who stages a daring armed car robbery in Colorado with the help of a call girl whom he picked up in a backwoods Mississippi motel, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Black Wings Has My Angel is set to start shooting later this year; this is Elijah's first producing credit, and will not star in the film. Casting will get under way shortly.W
